Words from the heart

She lay a pondering

The sorrow deepening

Her spirit grieving

The heaviness weighing

Her down and more


Why so much pain?

She couldn’t see any gain

She had struggled

She had toiled

From dusk till dawn


Her only joy, her family

Were sitted by her side

Alas! They would not understand

Her hubby, tho’ kind and loving

Was not always perceiving

Her daughter, still a little lass

Could barely understand


Who will help her?

Who will guide her?

And free her from this despair?

The cry of a desperate woman’s heart.
